  • Good notebook for Edius.

    I am a Edius products reseller in Spain. I have a customer working with EDIUS NX, SP and HD workstations ensambled by my company. Now, I must supply to them a notebook for workin with edius.
    Budget is not high, and I am thinking in an ASUS notebook ...
    Any suggestion for best compatibility or trouble-free ?

    all Core 2 based notebooks with separate vga card should work, even for HD.
    Hewlett Packard Series NX9420 or NX9440 is a good choise.

      I used regular Dell Laptops (Inspiron) for two years and could get 7 layers of SD DV footage playing in realtime and it would play with no problem.

      It would also play 2 layers of HD with no problem.

      It was a dual core CPU at a spped of 1.73 and a 120 Gig 5400 HD.

      Anything matching that or above it should work nicely for your customers :)

          I like the DV9000 series consumer version as it has a Express card slot vice a PCMCIA slot and I can add two large eSata II external enclosures for over a terrabyte of extra storage(easily hot swapped to a desktop machine, also the newer ones have a HDMI port.

                Incase you needed a quick answer, from HP, either OS is available to order with.

                  Use a Lenovo(IBM) Thinkpad with Ultra-Bay. You can easy use 2 HDDs. The bay uses SATA and the drive can be changed while the notebook is running. And most of the lenovo Thinkpads have a non reflective display-surface!

                    I've got a core duo (2.16), and I use it with 5 and 6 streams of DVCPRO HD all the time off of eSATA drives. Never hiccups.

                      Aloha Fellas,

                      If you don't mind something with a 20 inch screen (1600x1050) that you carry like a attaché' case check out the Dell XPS M2010. Has lots of ram*, two drives*, Phat CPU*, adjustable 20 inch monitor, wireless keyboard, wireless mouse, DVD burner, ATI X1800 video card that can push any video game on the market with easy (I add that for down time reasons), wifi card, 4 USB ports, Firewire port and built in speakers that sound pretty solid (comparing to other laptops). They have eight speakers with a sub-wolfer that has an airflow channel similar to the Bose Wave Radio which gives it a robust rich sound.

                      The Machine is very nice and will make it through airport security. We took one from Hawaii to Rome to Israel less then 2 weeks ago with no hang ups other then the security wanted to look at it for personal reasons.

                      Good luck and be sure to check out the M2010 model.

                        I am using a Sony Vaio VGNAR21S new model now 31S.

                        2GHz processor 2GHz ram 2 x 100Gb hard drives and 17inch high rez screen with blue ray, I am using E4 on this and it runs perfectly.

                        The new laptops with the new Intel processors are now being launched and are much better at handling video, read INTEL's website.

                            I guess the laptops haven't caught up yet to the updated SATA drives - you'd certainly think that if such were available, that thing would have them
